Leicester City finished the Premier League season on a high note as they secured a 5-1 victory against Queens Park Rangers. Even if Leicester City had lost their last match of the season, they still would have had more than enough points to ensure their Premier League survival.
This season has truly been an outstanding one for Leicester City as the club was located at the very bottom of the English League for a number of successive weeks but they managed to escape those dreaded spots after managing to seal important points and have now guaranteed their safety for another season.
As a way for the owners to repay and give their thanks to the supporters of the club, the Thai retail billionaires Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha bought the first round of beer at the King Power Stadium on the last day of the season.
The Vice-Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: “We want to say thank you to our fans for their incredible support this season. Even during the most difficult times of the season, when everyone thought we had no chance, our loyal fans continued to believe and continued to get behind the team.”
Offering free beer in the last match of the season was the way that the father and son who run Leicester City did in order to compensate their fans who went to the games despite not always seen their team coming out on top with the victory and seeing that the possibility of getting relegated could turn into a real outcome.
The fans who attended the King Power Stadium in the last match of the season were entitled to a voucher where they had the possibility of either choosing a bottle of water or a beer. This is not something that club owners routinely do but the fans are surely happy and would want to have it turned into something more common.
